Michael Jackson - XscapeDetails of a new Michael Jackson album featuring eight previously unreleased songs have been released.

Xscape will be released on the 13th May via Epic records and is the personal project of Executive Producer, LA Reid. Reid was granted unlimited access to 40 years worth of Jackson’s vocal recordings by the Jackson estate.

Producers who are credited with ‘contemporising’ Jackson’s work include Timbaland, Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, Jerome “Jroc” Harmon, and John McClain. The Deluxe Edition of the album will also include the vocal performances in their original form.

John Branca and John McClain, co-executors of the Estate of Michael Jackson commented: “Michael was always on the cutting edge and was constantly reaching out to new producers, looking for new sounds. He was always relevant and current. These tracks, in many ways, capture that spirit. We thank LA Reid for his vision.”
